When filmmaker Tim Burton was 9 years old, his mother made this skeleton costume for him one Halloween, using a snowman decoration for a bobbling head.

It bears an uncanny resemblance to Jack Skellington, the main character in Burton's stop-motion animated hit The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The photo was shared by Entertainment Weekly in an interview with Burton about his childhood.
